Workshop

Introducing: Your English accent

Are you a non-native English speaker? Do friends or colleagues often ask you to repeat yourself in English? Would you like to feel more confident about communicating in English during meetings or phone calls?  Would you like to improve your accent but don’t know where to start?

Mixed group talking in city building

This introductory workshop aims to break down the component features of an accent and give you some insight into the practical work involved in improving your own English accent. Work within the group (max 18) to explore your vocal potential in a safe and relaxed environment.

Who is it for? Anyone curious about improving their oral communication in English. Presenters, customer service reps, teachers, public speakers, singers, indeed anyone who wants to know more about speaking more clearly and confidently in English. Over 18s only.

What will I do? You’ll be guided through a series of practical exercises to explore and develop awareness of the mechanics of an accent. You’ll observe how physical adjustments impact on the component sounds and how music and rhythm play a vital role in being understood. The workshop will be in English, but your tutor speaks French also. At the end there’ll be a Q & A session and suggestions for taking the work further.

What do I need to bring? Wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. A summary pdf  will be provided so there is no need to take notes. If you have any disabilities please let your tutor know beforehand.
